Tree Falls on I-40 Severly Injuring Morganton, North Carolina Man

Stephen Brittain of Morganton was seriously injured on Wednesday when a tree fell on I-40 and struck Mr. Brittain’s truck.  Apparently, it took more than an hour for workers to remove the tree and extricate Mr. Brittain from the truck.  He was then rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

According to the article on this terrible accident, contractors are already pointing fingers as to who is to blame.  There was a road widening project occurring at the location of the accident but the company overseeing the project is blaming a subcontractor.  There is little doubt that one or more companies will need to be held accountable for what happened to Mr. Brittain in this terrible incident.
